the gcc supreme council held in riyadh, saudi arabia on january 5, 2021, has approved the amended patent law (regulation) for the gulf cooperation council. (bahrain, kuwait, oman, qatar, saudi arabia and the united arab emirates)

while the amended gcc patent law is not yet available to the public, one critical change is that the unified patent filing system for all six gcc states will cease effective january 04, 2021.

patent protection in the gcc states will be available through separate patent filing at the national patent offices, as 12 months priority or pct national phase applications.
